Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a weekly column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various NYC neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today, we're looking at apartments renting around $4,400/month.
↑ First up, there’s a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in Carroll Gardens. It comes with exposed brick walls and two decorative fireplaces, along with an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances from a recent renovation. There are also oversized windows that allow for plenty of natural light. Its asking price is $4,400/month.
↑ A spacious two-bedroom, this time in Midtown, is going for $4,450/month. The apartment spares you the task of finding furniture since it’s delivered fully furnished. Original hardwood floors run throughout the home, and there are high ceilings, plenty of windows, and six closets.
↑ In Williamsburg’s church-replacing Spire Lofts building, a one-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home is renting for $4,400/month. The industrial-style loft comes with plenty of exposed wood and brick, along with soaring ceilings, skylights, and original catwalks that lead from one room to the next. You also get a private balcony and access to the building’s shared backyard.
↑ In the Financial District, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom in the W Hotel wants $4,350/month. The layout is a bit odd and, well, hotel-like: there’s a small living room, a high-end kitchen with built-in appliances, and a glass-enclosed shower sitting next to the bed (yes, you read that right). Nevertheless, the apartment has views of the Hudson River, Statue of Liberty, and lower Manhattan.
↑ If you value location over space, you might not mind this studio in Greenwich Village that’s going for an even $4,400/month. There are a few nice finishes, including beamed ceilings and a marble-clad decorative fireplace; there’s also a sleep alcove and a pretty small windowed kitchen, though it does have stainless steel appliances.
↑ This Upper West Side duplex loft has two bedrooms, one bathroom, brick walls, original hardwood floors, and even a furnished outdoor space for $4,375/month. It’s also located just a block away from Central Park, the American Museum of Natural History, and the New-York Historical Society.
